Two Christians, Saheb Fadaie and Fatemeh Bakhteri were sentenced to 12 and 18 months in prison for “spreading propaganda against the regime.” Judge Mashaullah Ahmadzadeh was one of the judges involved. He is heavily complicit in Iran’s human rights abuses, and has presided over several cases which led to the imprisonment of Christians. The other judge, Judge Ahmad Zargar is currently on the European Union’s sanctions list for serious human rights violations, including overseeing miscarriages of justice. Please pray for the salvation of these men. Ask God for “Saul to Paul” experiences (The Bible, Acts 9:1-19).
